The only videotape of PUBLIC IMAGE LTD’s American tour will be premiered at The Kitchen, Monday, January 26 at 9:00pm.

The tape was directed and edited by Paul Dougherty and shot on location by Advanced Television. The five songs contained in the half—hour program were taped live at New York’s Great Gildersleeves in April of 1980. Four of the songs represent strictly ‘live’ coverage, while the fifth, Careering involves an ambitious use of special effects dealing with the song’s theme.

Besides John Lyndon and Keith Levine, two current members of
Public Image, Jah Wobble and Martin Atkins are also featured.
The songs presented in the program are: Careering, Public Image,
Another, Lowlife and Bad Baby

In addition to the ”Public Image”videotape, ”Frankie Teardrop” by Paul Dougherty, Mike Robinson and Edit DeAk will be featured.

PAUL DOUGHERTY is a videomaker and editor who has been producing his own work for a number of years. In collaboration with others, he produced and edited “White Collar Funk” (1976) , “Big Ship” (1977) , and “Frankie Teardrop” (1978) .

He spent the last five years working with state of the art editing systems and before that at the Synapse Visiting Artists Program, Manhattan Cable Television and The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Music is a common theme in all his work. This reflects an attitude that music is an essential component for the new generation of television software. He believes the synthesis of picture and music promises to be the prototype for original video-disc programming. His work has been shown in museums in Europe, Japan and America. Locally his videotapes have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, The Kitchen, and as part of the Cable Soho Television series.*
